Punk & Post-Punk is a peer-reviewed journal serving the international academic, industry and journalistic communities engaged with punk and post-punk culture. It explores the concepts of ‘alternative’ and ‘independent’ established during the punk explosion and developed through the ensuing post-punk era.

Article submissions:

We invite students of the punk and post-punk eras, as well as those from related disciplines into which punk’s influence has fed – including researchers, teachers and practitioners – to contribute to Punk & Post-Punk. We welcome papers exploring punk’s impact on the wider culture beyond music, including the arts, language, iconography, sociology and gender and race issues. We particularly encourage papers discussing regional and international differentiation and contribution. Articles should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in length. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

- Etymology and Language
Genre Definition and Development
- Antecedents and ‘proto-punk’ influences
- Methodologies and theories appropriate for research and study in this field
- Industrial structures and practices in relation to production

- Associated cultural industries including fanzines and fashion
- Performance of Style
- Concepts of Independence
